THE GAME JAM
Hello Developers, Artists, and anyone with a interest in video game development! This is South Florida Game Developers’ first Game Jam! This jam will be a 48 hour event. It is open to everyone, even if you have no programming experience.
At these events, developers and artists team up to make games. They work around the clock, often taking shifts to get the most out of the limited time they have.
Game Jams are becoming very popular because they provide a way for game enthusiasts to meet. They are a wonderful learning experience for those who have never made a game before.
Caffeine Spaces is a co-working environment with plenty of space for our jam. They are allowing us to have 24 hour access to the facility.
Each submission must have a BEGINNING and an END. If your game is endless by design (like Canabalt) then it must have some kind of GAME OVER screen.
Teams of any size are allowed, but it is recommended to keep it limited to 3 people per game.
Some scripts and assets will be provided to give your game a running start.
Anyone may participate. Anyone participating may use any existing assets they own. Stuff you can find online must be available for non-commercial use (more info here). Please bring your own hardware to work on.
TBA – We are still looking into sponsors for prizes
